Eating Out

 

The excellent local markets, restaurants, wine and food shops ensure that the whole area is a heavenly spot for food lovers! The best known local produce from this region include, of course, the fabulous wines and brandy from the Bordeaux, Bergerac and Cognac areas, but also the delicious aperitif drink, Pineau. We are spoilt with beautiful cheeses, patés, and the famous duck and foie gras but also have, in abundance, some things considered luxuries elsewhere : artisan patisserie and chocolate, oysters, mussels and other shellfish, figs, walnuts, and all manner of exquisite fresh fruit and vegetables.
